I do like the food at Piatto, but there are several restaurants around the city, with similar menus, that do them better. But there is definitely a cool, modern style happening here. The atmosphere is relaxing, but, with that being said, the restaurant has never been busy when I've visited. Oh, and another perk of Piatto is the highly convenient... More

This was my first visit to Piatto Pizzeria. The food was pretty good. We had olives, salad, white pizza, and chocolate cake, For drinks, we got 3 wine samples each. The atmosphere was casual. The waiter was good, and friendly. Was had a fun time.

Have been to the flagship Piatto in St. John's many times. Always popular and busy, great ambiance, energy and food. What happened to Piatto in Halifax? Feels industrial and uncomfortable. Weird table layout in the open space, bland food and service. Could have been in a cafeteria. So many great places to eat in Halifax, this isn't one of them.

My family and I were pleasantly surprised at the superb meal we had at Piatto. The starter salads are a must and the pizzas were out of this world. We had tried 4 of their pizzas and loved each of them and was hard to pick a favourite. For desert we had tried a small caramel with sea salt which... More

Finally got to try out Piatto after hearing so much about the pizza there. For $14 the lunch special is any 9" pizza and either a small soup or a small salad. I have to say the Barbabieto la Arrostita salad (beets, pecans and goat cheese) was amazing! I would go back just to have it again. I ordered a... More

I've visited several times after work and on Saturday late afternoon over the past 2 months. Service is excellent when seated at the bar, with the added benefit of the bartenders being interesting to chat with. love the little snacks they leave on the bar, and really enjoy their pizza. crust is thin and tasty, not like a typical pizza...

Loved the diversity and quality of the pizza her. I've only been twice and both times tried something different and not disappointed either time. Most recently I had the Siciliana pizza. Nice and spicy as advertised with the right portion of toppings. Staff her are always very helpful regarding tastes and customer preferences. Would recommend.

Went there for dinner with a friend. The food and menu were great. The service was good too. But it was not comfortable and it was very noisy.

It does sometimes become a bit boistrous at times due to our great atmosphere and lively guests. We would not have it any other way but we do invite you to return for a visit during our lunches for a more subdued experience and still amazingly good Pizza. More

Stopped in to try a high end pizza. Place looks great, nice open layout and well decorated. We arrived around 430 and the place was about a third full. Within 20 minutes it was almost full which points out how good it is. Staff was friendly and the pizza came out so fast it was almost like a pre-order. It... More

Piatto is a gathering place centred around a passion for fine food, fabulous wines, friends and family. Check out the little gems we've come across—diverse wines from across the globe, authentic Neapolitan wood-fired pizza, coffee and fabulous desserts—all in a casual atmosphere and with reasonable prices.

In our world, authenticity is big. Our pizzaiolo use ingredients and procedures regulated by the Italian governing association (VPN)—so you experience a "true" pizza like you would find in the energetic pizzerias in Naples, Italy (but without the airfare).
